Happy 90th

Hello to all of you in blogland. 

It is exactly 3 months since I last posted anything on my blog, so here I
am at last. There are several reason for my absence (healthwise), but I
will not bore you with the details, as I know that so many people are 
in an infinitely more dire situation than me. We are certainly in 
awful times aren't we, and I fear there is worse to come.

On a happier note, one of our neighbours celebrated a major milestone
last week, turning 90 years of age. Anne is so sweet (and quite a character).
This is the card I made for her.
The flowers were cut with a 'strip die', and hand-coloured with distress inks
and an aqua brush. The whole process was quite time-consuming and
fiddly, but as Anne is such a cutie, I was happy to create the card for her.

The 'With Love' die-cut is tiny. I cut around it
with my deckle-edge scissors.

I had one flower left over, so I adhered it 
inside the card.

Inside the card. As I prepared to take this photo, the sun 
was suddenly obscured by dark clouds and seconds
later the rain pelted down.
